attendance and taking part in church activities, Second, helping finan- 
cially., 

Sow, if you are too fax away to be present at church, or if your 
work is of such a nature that you cannot attend church, you surely can help 
the financial matters of your church by paying regularly toward its sup- 
port.

£aod standing. 

By order of Consistory of Urs5.nu3 Reformed Churoh.

:Dear Kt. Jlaheri 

Your letter of March 12th., 1?2? with inference to your unpaid 
ohuroh pledge of $60.00 received. 

In checking over your account we find that you have paid $92.00 
which leaves ft balance cue of only $58 .00. 

Bag to advise that at the last meeting of our consistory this 
matter was taken up and discussed at some length, the consistory locked 
at i» in this light, that the church was build on pledgee tad the 
honor of the people making the pledges; tkere is still other pledgee 
unpaid? we still owe some on the church arid if we enpect to lift this 
debt we must look to the people that auade pledges to work with us, aid 
they felt chat if they released one these would be others that would like 
to be released also, and we would be left with this debt ©a our hands. 

We notice also that in the near future you expected to transfer 
your membership to Buffalo, we do not oaxe to lose you and will be glad 
for you to continue your membership with us? however if you lid desire to 
move to TJuffalo the consistory decided that they would not hold this pledge 
against you in considering you in good standing. 

Hope that you will appreciate our position in not granting your 
request in full, we are. 

Yours very truly.

- 



Ths Consistory acknowledges with grateful appreciation the untiring effort 
and work on the part of our pastor. We recognize through his visitations a careful 
and thoughtful ministry, and that he has a sympathetic understanding of our congregation, 
even though we are a part of wavering humanity. We note his masterful and magnificent 
presentation of the gospel from the pulpit Sunday after Sunday, These things cannot 
be done so forcefully without a lot of work on his part. 

As the official church body, we originally recommended to our congregation 
that he be called as pastor, and at this time we desire to remind the congregation 
again of our confidence in him, which has not wavered in the lease during these 
few years, Ve believe Mm to be thoroughly conscientious in all his work, profoundly 
sympathetic toward all the activities of the church, and possessing a bleeding heart 
for all people outside the fold of God, We pray that the excellent cooperation 
now existing between pastor and congregation may becomeeven greater, and that 
we recognise our pastor as he preaches to us as being the mouthpiece of God, and 
that he is attempting $o fill our lives with the spirit of God, 

We recommend to our congregation that they heed the call of the pastor and renew 
and reconsecreate their lives during these troublesome times of war, famine, pestilence, 
greed, and hatred, so that the spirit of God may be kept forcefully alilro in our 
hearts and minds. We desire that this congregation may be thoughtful to the duties 
to be done wi thing our own fold, that our church attendance might be lifted up to 
a higher plane, and that through our faithfulness in performing our tasks, we may be 
expressing our love for our pastor as he leads us to know the Urving God,
